Carl Edwards is a Class Act:

Sun Nov 20, 2011 11:29 pm

Congratulation to Smoke and the #14 Office Depot/Mobil One Team on their Championship and to Smoke for his third Cup.

Congratulations to Carl Edwards and his #99 AFLAC team for a job well done, to Carl for racing clean like a Champion, and for showing class through this whole Chase right up to meeting the #14 on the track. That is class.

I can only imagine how Carl must have felt after finishing 2nd. But you're right, him coming over to Tony's car to congratulate him showed a lot of class.

To me, everyone in the race showed great respect & professionalism.

He told his wife - "If I can't be the best winner... then I'll try to be the best loser."

That is class.... :-)

Though I have never been an Edwards fan, I admire him for racing a clean race, and for showing alot of class after the race. As far as him losing the championship, I don't feel like he lost the championship. He did just about everything he had to do. Tony just flat out won it by doing what he had to do. This was the best chase ever, even if it would have turned out differently. To have the 2 guys racing for the championship finish 1-2, you couldn't have scripted it any better. I'm already looking forward to next season, when Tony finally wins the Daytona 500.
